Wein' an den Felsen der brausenden Winde,
Weine, [Mädchen]1 von Inistore!
Beug' über die Wogen Dein schönes Haupt,
Lieblicher Du als der Geist der Berge,
Wenn er um Mittag in einem Sonnenstrahl
Ueber das Schweigen von Morven fährt. 
Er ist gefallen, Dein Jüngling liegt darnieder,
Bleich sank er unter Cuthullins Schwert.
Nimmer wird Muth deinen Liebling mehr reizen,
Das Blut von Königen zu vergießen.
Trenar, der liebliche Trenar starb,
O Mädchen von Inistore!
Seine grauen Hunde heulen daheim,
Sie sehen seinen Geist vorüberziehn
Sei Bogen hängt ungespannt in der Halle,
Nichts regt sich auf der Haide der Rehe.

Piangi sulle rocce battute dai venti...
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Piangi sulle rocce battute dai venti mugghianti,
piangi, o fanciulla di Inistore!
Piega sulle onde il tuo bel capo,
tu, più gentile dello spirito dei monti
quando a mezzogiorno, in un raggio di sole
viaggia sul silenzio di Morven.
E caduto, il tuo giovinetto giace lì,
pallido, sotto la spada di Cuthullin.
Mai più il coraggio inciterà il tuo amato
a spargere il sangue dei re.
Trenar, il dolce Trenar è morto,
o fanciulla di Inistore!
A casa, i suoi cani grigi ululano,
vedono il suo fantasma passare.
Il suo arco non più teso pende nella sala,
niente si muove nella brughiera dei caprioli.
